Seraphimon and Holydramon did appear as Takeru’s and Hikari’s Ultimate forms in various other media, yes, including the D-3 toy, Brave Tamer, and Battle Evolution.
yeah, that's it. I couldn't think of the wording.Convergent evolution...?
Have you noticed some examples in Digimon that seem like convergent evolution? Another example I have is Coronamon with both Liollmon and Flamemon
I have a headcanon sub-topic: are there any digimon who aren't related through evolution but seem to be related genetically due to being based on similar data? An easy example is Guardromon and Blimpmon.
I was thinking about this when noticing that Cutemon and Lunamon are both rabbits who seem to have similar overgrown sensory organs that allow them to hear over vast distances
Honestly I think Convergent evolution doesn't fit in because... Digicore's "Database" is loosely connecting to the evolution so a single digimon evolve to any then evolve to any and repeat and some digimon designs happen to look similar despite unrelated families in some other evolution lines. So I don't know how to answer that...
As much as I'd say that I was initially inclined to see A2020, the bits of what I saw disinclined me from viewing it as I suspect the series took a 360 due to constraints of the pandemic. I suspect the series was initially intended as its own reboot proper,potentially leading to a more robust series, as opposed to a mere tribute series.Adventure Digimon have their destined partner that’s the human they’re most compatible with, but maybe they have other humans they can partner with who are less compatible?
like Agumon and Kari in the first movie, or Ryo and Agumon/Veemon/Monodramon in his games
Izzy, Willis, Mimi, Matt and Tai all have extra partners in D-1 Tamers(and most other humans in that game have three Digimon), which made me think of thisDemiMeramon and Kunemon, Gazimon and Guardromon, Mushroomon and Monochromon, Leomon and Angemon, and Cyclomon and Triceramon respectively
Please provide me with a bit more context.They can't becauseAll of them, sans Seraphimon, died in the Ancient War, so they're actually in their (likely) second incanations.
They had all died and lost their memories, so the forms they had achieved were no longer available to them. They’d been reset.
I think @Muur's response below articulates the issue with that.They had all died and lost their memories, so the forms they had achieved were no longer available to them. They’d been reset.
This is something that irked me about where A2020 went as the series progressed, at least what I vaguely followed of it.They had all died and lost their memories, so the forms they had achieved were no longer available to them. They’d been reset.
Which is inconsistent with Tri where the amnesia mons could still go mega.
Also, she got "reset" yet meow face still has Gatomon as default for no storyline reason.
Right. I get that. They were obliged not to deviate from the reissuing of anniversary merchandise. That's really the only justification for it.Because status quo. These are the forms they're associated with, so that's what we're stuck with.
But doesn't that undermine the premise of the reboot as initially introduced?Presumably in both instances they simply followed their optimal evolution route.
But doesn't that undermine the premise of the reboot as initially introduced?
To my understanding, and I suppose this falls under a headcanon, the partner digimon were reawakened as the ancient evil that threatened the digital world was reborn.But doesn't that undermine the premise of the reboot as initially introduced?
What would that be?
